Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
I substituted 1% milk since no buttermilk on hand; accidentally melted the butter instead of cutting in; used 2 1/2 T butter in recipe and Pam to coat pan. The batter was thin like others said it would be, but pancakes turned out great! I may add oats next time as another reviewer suggested.

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
This is amazing - I'll never make another kind of pizza dough again. Per other suggestions, I substituted flax for wheat germ and coated ball of dough with a little EVOO. I tried rolling dough out delicately, but it takes some muscle! Please give this a try - you'll be SO glad that you did.

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: May 10, 2007
Wow! This was H-O-T! I used ONE TEASPOON for 3/4 lb of Tilapia and it was fiery enough. My lime disappeared so I can't truly review the salsa; however, I added cream cheese to the corn mixture and it was the perfect complement to the fiery fish (omit red onion if adding softened cream cheese). I will definately make fish again - it was insanely delicious wrapped up in a warm whole wheat tortilla.

Creamy Zucchini with Linguine

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
To all the reviewers who did not use all the olive oil recipe calls for: try it again following the recipe! I thought the amt was crazy too and ended up not liking the dish until I tried it again using MORE olive oil. Try me. You'll see!

Jennifer's Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Omitted brown sugar; this is unbelievable. I couldn't even wait for it to cool! Great ideas on mixing in dried fruits to mix it up. I will be having this EVERY morning!

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Wow! Surprisingly delicious - light, crispy, and really good for you! I didn't even feel bad using syrup b/c they were so good for me. (I love syrup despite the sugar content!) Great idea from other reviewer about adding mashed fruit/sweet potato for more variations.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
My husband l-o-v-e-d this recipe ("dinner from heaven"); there's just something addicting about it! I loved it for its change of pace vs. the ordinary side dish fare. I only used a 1/2 pkg of spinach, which was plenty and subbed pine nuts for walnuts and parm for feta. Delish!

Garlic Sauteed Artichokes

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
Can someone tell me how to avoid burning the garlic while sauteing the artichokes? I gave this a try, but ended up with a mess. Suggestions, please!!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
What a great way to dress up broccoli. This is very good! I used 4 T butter and could have even gotten away with less. I will thicken sauce next time OR serve over rice to soak up the deliciousness at the bottom of the serving bowl. YUM!

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Oh. My. Gosh. This was sooo good. I'm only sorry I didn't discover corned beef and how easy it is to cook sooner! Halved the recipe minus the peppercorns; came out tender and delicious. I'm going to sneak another bite right now!

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
I used 3/4 c brown sugar based on others who said it was too sweet; used 4 large apples and combined them with cinn & sugar (add pecans or walnuts!). Turned out perfectly; I'm going for seconds right now!

Pasta e Fagioli a la Chez Ivano

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I just had Pasa e Fagioli at the Olive Garden and HAD to duplicate it at home. I halved this recipe, but used even less hamburger (1/2 lb.). Added one or two carrots, chopped and sauteed with onion. I didn't simmer it for an hour nor did I bother with the simmer time in between hamburger/beans/pasta. Just threw it all in there and it was delicious!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I'm about to skew the ratings, but I don't think you'll mind - here's why! I wanted to taste the difference b/t a pecan pie, bite for bite, made with and without corn syrup. So, I made two and this recipe hardly compared in taste and color. While it might have passed for pecan pie on its own, I agree with the oter reviewers who say this isn't 'traditional' in taste. It has a thicker, more flour-y taste/consistency and desparately needs more [toasted]pecans. The winning recipe was from Baking Illustrated and was complete with 2 cups of TOASTED and CHOPPED pecans.

Smothered Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I wanted to love this b/c it was so easy and ingredients are easily found... and I did! I used 1 lb. ground beef, 1/2 cup water, and 2 t chili powder + 1/2 t cumin (sub for taco seasoning); also added 2t chili pwd + 1/2 t cumin to 1 small can of refried beans. A layer that I don't think is optional. I'm not sure if the ricotta and egg add anything so I might try ommitting it and replace it with cheese. Update: leftovers resulted in soggy tortillas. I'm going to blame the ricotta. Will definately opt for layer of cheese instead of ricotta & egg.

Avocado Tzatziki

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I do not care for traditional Tzatsiki made with yogurt. We frequent a small Greek spot here in Omaha and I love their Tzatziki so I figured it was sour cream and NOT yogurt... and now I can make it myself with this recipe! It's insanely delicious!! Mmmmmmmm!

Almond Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
The dressing was strong for my taste - I thought it was the sesame oil that overpowered the dish, but after reading the reviews it might have been the mustard. I will try review's suggestion and add olive oil to tone it down. Otherwise, great reminder of how good salads really are!

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
This was perfect for a girl who doesn't *really* know what spanish rice tastes like! Added 1/2 t cumin and sub chix broth as others suggested. Perfect side with tacos and refined beans. I do like it saucier so I may add can of tomato sauce and decrease chicken broth (not water!) by 1/4 c. Delish!

Risotto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I ran out of liquids at 5 cups and because I prefer my risotto especially creamy, I'll be better prepared to have at least 6 cups if not more on hand. I suggest dicing tomatoes so you get some with every bite! Halved mozzarella. A nice, rich dish to accompany fish or chicken.

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
This is a 4 star recipe, but definately has 5 star potential. And whoa - this is h-e-a-l-t-h-y! And I'm no stranger to flax, WW flour, applesauce for oil, etc.! I subsituted 1T flaxseed + 3T water (rest in separate bowl for 5 min.) for 1 of the eggs and the applesauce for oil; *will add* cinnamon and 1/4-1/2 c plain yogurt to lighten the heaviness of the bread.
